Video: Surreal Dash Cam

Play this video and try not to think this is a recording of last night's dream.

Or a recording of what your intrepid traffic reporter was dreaming ....

This is a dash cam fitted with what the creator calls a mirror filter.

I say, pretty cool.

Gas at $3.09 a Gallon By Tuesday?

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
Oh, this is beginning to hurt.
Gas price 2-95
The guys at The Gas Game, who are pretty good at this, predict gas prices to jump to $3.09 and stay there for a little while.

And we can thank the lousy economy for this.

Read their reasons.

The passengers in this taxi in Tianjin, China, sound like they are American.

"Oh, My God!"

"Ohhhhhhh. My God!"

Watch The Chevrolet Volt Assembled In Under 2 Minutes

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
No, it doesn't take just two minutes to assemble the new Chevrolet Volt, but gizmodo.com posted this time-lapse video that lets you see the complex process in one minute, 55 seconds. (We found the video on wired.com.)

By the way, have you noticed it's not the "Chevy" Volt? The marketing geniuses at Chevrolet (or GM, I don't know which) have mandated officially dropping referring to their products as Chevies. While the Volt has been marketed brilliantly, this edict is idiocy. "Chevy" is a term of affection. The brand should embrace it, even encourage it.

Snapshot of one crazy commute.

The weather wasn't that bad. The driving was terrible.

Most drivers who got into trouble today were simply driving too fast for conditions.

To give you an idea of the craziness this morning, the table below is one moment (8:27 a.m.) in the life of the Ottawa County dispatch center. These are all the incidents at one moment in time for just one county.

There was no way to keep up on the number of incidents: slide-offs, rollovers, fender-benders, etc.
